What's The Weather Like In Hisaronu In October
October sees the start of autumn and a steady decline in temperatures as winter approaches in Hisaronu. While it's still possible to do a little sunbathing, it's really no longer beach weather. Throughout autumn, rainfall averages also increase so the occasional shower is likely.
The average temperature in autumn in Hisaronu is 19C, with highs of 25C. It's still warm, but nowhere near as hot as it was in the summer; July and August, for example, see average temperatures of 26C and highs of 33C. Overnight, the temperature drops to a low of around 12C, which isn't terribly cold but not quite warm either.
It's a similar story across Turkey, with cooler temperatures and fewer hours of sunshine. Izmir, on the south west coast, for example, sees average temperatures of 18C and highs of 23C. It's likely to be even cooler the further north you travel, with average temperatures of just 12C and highs of 19C in Istanbul.
Sunshine Hours/Sea Temperature
There are still 9 sunshine hours each day, which combined with the more moderate temperatures does mean lovely conditions for sightseeing and outdoor activities which were prohibited by the extreme heat and crowds of the summer months. Sea temperatures cool more slowly and are around 23C at this time, so swimming and watersports are still quite possible.
Rainfall averages begin to rise at this time, with 65mm expected over 14 days in Hisaronu. This is quite a significant rise; only 19mm was expected over 12 days in September and really shows the wet winter months are beginning to close in. It's wetter across the country at this time, though areas to the north, like Istanbul, which are wetter all year round will see less of a significant increase; rainfall averages rise by just 10mm between September and October in Istanbul.

Hisaronu Beaches For October
The easily accessible beaches at lüdeniz, near Fethiye, are packed with sun-worshippers, but Kabak, a few miles to the south-east, receives just a trickle of visitors due to the 30-minute walk to reach it from the village of the same name, which is in turn reached by minibus from lüdeniz. A sandy beach fronting a densely wooded valley, it's worth the effort to get there.
Phaselis offers three beaches, accessed through dappled pine forest: the western beach is the sandiest and longest, the eastern one pebbly. It's accessed for a small fee through the ruins.
Bars And Restaurants
Yeil Asma Yapraı
There are lots of fabulous fast food restaurants, Turkish-style, in nearby Fethiye. Yeil Asma Yapraı (Green Vine Leaf) serves delicious, cheap Turkish lokanta food. It's popular with locals on their lunch break, and passing tourists during high season. With a true lokanta, you never know what food is going to be on offer when you arrive. This place is famous for its yaprak sarma (stuffed vine leaves) but you might have to get there early to be sure to get some. Alternatively, try the köfte (tiny balls of minced meat in a sour sauce) and rice.
Fethiye has a few restaurants that have become absolute institutions, places where locals have been eating for years. Yengen Burger is one of those institutions. The kebabs aren't particularly cheap, but the portions are generous, there's outdoor seating, and you can even get a portion of homemade chips to go with your kebab. Also, as the name suggests, they serve burgers! And if you should so wish, you can even accompany it with a beer!
The Bees Knees Restaurant
Whether you're looking for an early breakfast, light lunch or three course dinner, The Bees Knees Restaurant is the place to go. Here you'll find a large international menu with various traditional Turkish dishes. There's also a special menu just for children.
Things To Do In Hisaronu In October
If you like a hike, it's well worth taking a trip to Saklıkent Canyon, meaning "hidden city" in Turkish, is located 50 km from Fethiye. The Canyon is 300 meters deep and 18 km long, one of the deepest in the world, the result of the abrasion on the rocks by flowing waters over thousands of years. The level of water rises during the winter months, so visitors can enter the canyon only in the summer. 4km of the canyon are walkable after April, when most of the snow in the Taurus Mountains has melted.
The Lunapark Fairground is only visited by tourists, but nonetheless great fun if you're looking for a way to keep the kids entertained. Open until around midnight, take a ride on the Pirate Ship, showcase your driving skills on the Dodgems or jump about on the giant trampoline, stopping only to refuel with a hot dog or some other junk food.
Adrenaline junkies will be eager to try paragliding one of the most popular sports in Hisaronu. Most excursions set of from the 6,000 foot-high BabaDag Mountain at Olu Deniz.
